I got this e-mail from Knockout Pest Control after I got back from my trip. Fortunately, I did not bring bedbugs home, but I will pay more attention the next time I travel. Some tips I already knew, but others were new to me.

  1. Inspect your room as soon as you get in. Pay attention to the mattress, bedding and headboard, if made of wood.

  2. Put your luggage on the luggage carrier, not on the floor.

  3. Dress and undress in the bathroom. You will see bugs on the floor if they are on your clothing and fall on the floor. Place your worn clothing in a separate bag to wash as soon as you get home.

  4. Before you unpack, vacuum out the suitcase, to get rid of bugs on items that can't be washed. Wash everything else in hot water in the machine.
